The Revelation Of Presence

Standard

*

I quiver as the sun
comes back out
from behind the trees

.

I remember being
fifteen drenched in
too many questions

.

boiling over in the
heat of the sunshine
evaporating upward

.

leaving

.

room for silence
to fill each single
gap each crevice

.

.

Possibilities

Standard

*
tall piles of books
tall piles of paper
tall piles of drawings
tall piles of note taking
tall piles of poems scribbled

a few empty jars cleaned out
I live in my ideal city pushed
back in the corner I sit
each title a windows’
line each space

a possibility

.

Asking You

Standard

*

don’t many of us
in this life get the chance
to be human

.
even if for a brief
moment of vulnerability

.
tenderness entwined in
with love and forgiveness
embracing mistakes

.
ours or others
understanding
there are no podiums

.
but one race
just one step
following
the other

.
one person
looking after another

keeping our necks oiled
to turn around

any given time

.

Blossom In Presence

Standard

*

it is so

that every morning

I go about pressing the foot

on the same path that’s how

.

habits are formed good ones

.

I have learned in between

.

steps to make treasure of

observation new revelations

as they come blossom

.

in presence

.

This is the first poem posted in 2021 with my wish to you that you will blossom in presence in all of your beauty.

~ Also, tomorrow is my birthday and I wish to myself the good habit to be present and grateful every day that is given to me.

Beauty Lingering

Standard

*

it’s an afterward
moving

this of giving poetry
a way

to talk about the beauty
lingering

unseen
sensitivity shining

bright
in our darker days

when we
think there’s little

to be seen

On Clouds – California Notebooks 01

Standard

*

I’m not knowledgeable
on climatic changes

the way the winds go
on high or low pressure

I didn’t keep my head on books

but clouds those I know

teaching us
how to be in life

the best ones being
those moving fast

giving no resistance
to life happenings

they follow whatever
wind coming their way

you see them glorying

and soon happily gone

busy dancing
life out

no time to pout – others
grow dark and sit dense

giving headaches

to some of us

they build resistance
to any life changes

no escape
the heaviness

they create
will break on us all
